Can assignment tests measure dispersal?
Individual‐based assignment tests are now standard tools in molecular ecology and have several applications, including the study of dispersal. The measurement of natal dispersal is vital toExpand

Temperature Sex Reversal Implies Sex Gene Dosage in a Reptile
Sex in reptiles is determined by genes on sex chromosomes or by incubation temperature. Previously these two modes were thought to be distinct, yet we show that high incubation temperatures reverseExpand

The ends of a continuum: genetic and temperature‐dependent sex determination in reptiles
Two prevailing paradigms explain the diversity of sex‐determining modes in reptiles. Many researchers, particularly those who study reptiles, consider genetic and environmental sex‐determiningExpand

Sex reversal triggers the rapid transition from genetic to temperature-dependent sex
Sex determination in animals is amazingly plastic. Vertebrates display contrasting strategies ranging from complete genetic control of sex (genotypic sex determination) to environmentally determinedExpand

Effect of Vegetation Matrix on Animal Dispersal: Genetic Evidence from a Study of Endangered Skinks
Maintaining connectivity in fragmented landscapes is a key principle of biological conservation. Although corridors are a widely accepted approach to connecting populations, their merits are stillExpand

Body Size of Tiger Snakes in Southern Australia, with Particular Reference to Notechis ater serventyi (Elapidae) on Chappell Island
Insular gigantism was studied in a large, field-caught sample of Australian tiger snakes (Notechis ater serventyi), on Chappell Island, Bass Strait, to determine which of three hypotheses (foodExpand

Genetic evidence for co-occurrence of chromosomal and thermal sex-determining systems in a lizard
An individual's sex depends upon its genes (genotypic sex determination or GSD) in birds and mammals, but reptiles are more complex: some species have GSD whereas in others, nest temperaturesExpand

Foxes are now widespread in Tasmania: DNA detection defines the distribution of this rare but invasive carnivore
Summary 1. Invasive vertebrate species are a world-wide threat to biodiversity and agricultural production. The presence of foxes, one of the most damaging invasive vertebrates introduced toExpand

Non-homologous sex chromosomes of birds and snakes share repetitive sequences
Snake sex chromosomes provided Susumo Ohno with the material on which he based his theory of how sex chromosomes differentiate from autosomal pairs. Like birds, snakes have a ZZ male/ZW female sexExpand

The dragon lizard Pogona vitticeps has ZZ/ZW micro-sex chromosomes
The bearded dragon, Pogona vitticeps (Agamidae: Reptilia) is an agamid lizard endemic to Australia. Like crocodilians and many turtles, temperature-dependent sex determination (TSD) is common inExpand
